Gravas del Bío-bío Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Gravas del Bío-Bío, a Sauvignon Blanc that expresses all of the typicity and elegance of the variety. The wine comes from Mulchén in the Bío Bío Valley, where the soils and climate are ideal for the production of high-end white wines such as this one. The Andes Mountains play an essential role for the cool temperatures it provides the vineyard, helping to produce grapes with tremendous fruit expression and balanced acidity.
